Although very rare, the relationship between the tooth and the eye has been described for since a long time. Indeed, there are many ocular manifestations of dental origin: reflex manifestations, immune manifestations and mostly infectious manifestations. The most incriminated teeth in this pathological relationship being the wisdom teeth; in fact their evolution can be associated to many accidents. The infectious accidents are the most frequently. We have also mechanical, cystic and tumor accidents and more rarely, remote events like reflex accidents. A whole heterogeneous symptomatology has been cited in the context of reflex accidents, due to the presence of wisdom teeth in a richly vascularized an innervated region (the trigeminal nerve). We can see a trophic, muscular, glandular, vascular and neurological disorder. We will study a clinical situation illustrating a case of uveitis associated to wisdom teeth evolution, and the disappearance of all symptoms after dental extraction to highliths the secondary manifestations of dental origin.Full article
